Quarterback Drew Lock earned first-team All-SEC honors from The Associated Press on Monday and was one of four Tigers recognized. Lock led the nation with 43 touchdown passes — 17 more than the next-closest SEC passer.

Wide receiver J’Mon Moore — who, it was announced later Monday, will also play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 27 in Mobile, Alabama — tight end Albert Okwuegbunam and defensive end Marcell Frazier earned second-team honors.

Okwuegbunam tied for first in the SEC with 11 touchdown receptions. He was a key member of the Tigers’ red-zone package and one of Lock’s favorite targets throughout the season.

Moore was second in the conference in receiving yards, and Frazier collected seven sacks on the year.
